Mercedes-Benz India Considering C63 Coupe

The Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe will take on the likes of other two-door four-seater coupes likes the BMW M4 and the recently launched Audi RS5.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class range in India gets the standard sedan which is available in both petrol and diesel. There’s also the AMG powered C43 and C63S 4-door. Of course, we can’t forget that India also gets the C300 Cabriolet and now Mercedes-Benz India is considering the addition of the C63 Coupe body style as an addition to that lineup. The Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe will take on the likes of other two-door four-seater coupes likes the BMW M4 and the recently launched Audi RS5. This will be the first time India will get the C-Class in a coupe body style. The last gen E-Class and the updated S-Class is also available in the coupe bodystyle with the new E-Class coupe expected to join the lineup soon.

The Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe will get a 4-litre, bi-turbo V8 engine that will make 469 bhp in its standard avatar and 503 bhp in the more powerful S avatar. Expect India to only get the S version just like the C63 sedan. Unlike the Audi RS5 which gets the quattro all-wheel-drive setup, the C63 Coupe will only get rear wheel drive version. Incidentally, the C63S Coupe’s primary rival, the BMW M4, is also available exclusively with rear wheel drive. The C63 S makes 700 Nm of peak torque and gets from 0-100 kmph in just 3.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 290 kmph.
